Ballard House Naming Rights Sponsors

The Ballard House was named In honor of longtime Katy residents Monty and Erin Ballard. Monty started The Ballard Foundation to assist Cinco Charities financially in the construction of their vision, a Hospital Hospitality House in Katy. A memorial to Monty's dad, Carroll Ballard, a longtime working Texas cowboy is located in the lobby of the Ballard House. His saddle and other memorabilia are displayed.
